Also known as '1 Godfrey Avenue'.
If family stands at the centre of your world, then here's a fully renovated home that shares the same love and passion for family life, designed to offer the quintessential family lifestyle on a breathtaking five-acre natural haven, known as 'Tara Park'.
With two acres of manicured grass for kids to explore, five fully fenced and goat proofed paddocks, two horse sheds, large chicken coop, enclosed area for veggie plots, a brand new horse arena with tack shed and direct access to the neighbouring Warrandyte State Park - and with it, access to walking and horse-riding trails - it's the ultimate playground. Speaking of playgrounds, there's also one of those just off the side of the house, fully enclosed for added safety and landscaped for added beauty. Want more? There's a waterslide connected to the saltwater-chlorinated, self-cleaning and solar-heated swimming pool (with Cabana), and although it's intended for the kids, there's no doubting the adults will be keen to partake in some child's play of their own come summer!
If you're impressed by the home's sprawling grounds that also boast remarkable privacy, tranquility and established natural beauty, you'll fall instantly in love with the charming home that's filled with natural light, space and modern comfort.
Stylishly renovated over the past 12 months, the home offers a brand new sense of living with the added benefits of zoned bedrooms, three separate living areas and stunning indoor-outdoor entertaining options. Return verandahs that integrate with the property's interior wrap themselves around the front and side of the home, overlooking the picturesque landscape below and offering a pleasant outlook over the treetops.
Configured to capture the Northerly aspect, the home is bathed in natural light, with large Colonial-style windows inviting the leafy views into the home. Open-plan living occupies the heart of the flowing layout, blending a spacious sitting area, meals and gourmet kitchen (with quality European stainless steel appliances and loads of bench and storage space) as one. A semi-secluded rumpus that's grand in size delivers the perfect indoor retreat for kids, leaving the sunken lounge to be enjoyed by the adults.
Bedrooms with reverse-cycle air-conditioning units, hydronic heating and ceiling fans are of very generous proportions and have been designed for maximum comfort, and in the case of the children's bedrooms, feature double built-in robes and are zoned on a quiet section of the home, along with the luxurious family bathroom, which also features double built-in robes!
The home also boasts a stylish Master ensuite, polished Baltic timber floorboards, gas log fireplace, automatic window shutters, abundant storage, two water tanks (for irrigation and swimming pool), downstairs gym or potential home office, two street accesses (via Godfrey Ave or Hogan Ave) and workshop.
Conveniently, local shops and cafes, bus transportation and schools are within easy reach.
